Two Days of some of the Top Engine Instructors and a Third Day Flowing Water. This Conference is a First of its kind where the total Weapon Selection of water delivery wil be covered in the classroom and outside. Students will get to use and evaluate all nozzle types and hose sizes to include TRU ID. If you are looking for the total package of understanding water delivery this is the Conference, to include Big Fire, Big Water Tactics.

Rooms at the Pensacola Beach Hilton for $150 and FREE SHUTTLE from the Pensacola airport. Attendees that fly will not need to rent a car. This is a Great Conference for FDs that will be evaluting hose and nozzle selection in the future.

More info on all WOF Seminars. The one above is the most indepth, but we offer them aroumd the country.

Water On The Fire “Seminars & Conferences”
WATER ON THE FIRE

Almost all fires require the use of water for extinguishment. There are so many options when
it comes to hose and nozzle packages, that a complete and proper understanding of the water delivery system is critical. Once you have selected the best hose and nozzle package to fit your needs, you must now come up with the best set up for your apparatus. Practical knowledge and experience, not price, should be the driving factor for your next hose and nozzle purchase. Remember, as the first line goes, so goes the fire.

This program will cover all aspects of hose and nozzle options, the selection process,
and best practices for storage and deployment on your apparatus. We will also cover stretching, charging, flowing, advancing, and repacking. An attack line of proper size and length must be stretched at all fires, but more importantly, it must be staffed for success. The size, length, deployment location, and staffing for the first line are the most critical things to consider when arriving at a working fire.

Utilizing pictures and videos of fire incidents either commanded or worked by the speaker, you will see firsthand the importance of putting WATER ON THE FIRE. The opinions given in this one day, high energy presentation are based on the speaker’s experiences, both good and bad. You will get objective and experienced based information and options that are supported by Science and Research, and are backed by highly experienced firefighters and fire officers. All attendees will leave with a better understanding of water delivery through proper hose and nozzle selection, as well as tips for knowing when and where to stretch the first, second, and additional attack lines at a working fire.

More and more, we are seeing the need for two or more lines to be stretched at the fires of today and tomorrow. These lines are not always used in the traditional fashion of the 2nd line backs up the first, but may support it through attack from a different vantage point. The finer points of attack line tactics, as well as understanding the Desired Flow, Desired Reach, and Desired Combat Mobility of each line to achieve maximum results at your next fire will be discussed.

To support your initial fire attack, this seminar will also cover water supply through the use of the booster back up method, as well as supply hose bed options to ultimately take full advantage of hydrant water supply. An adequate and sustained water supply is imperative, and so many times fire departments catch hydrants without fully tapping into the available water. Forward, reverse, and split lays will also be covered to back up the booster attack. The ultimate goal is to extinguish your fire as efficiently, safely, and professionally as possible. “Hit it Hard, Hit it Fast, & Back it Up”

UL Coordinated Fire Attack Research Panel

Im VERY EXCITED to be selected for the UL Coordinated Fire Attack Panel. Im very passionate about Fire Attack and providing the best TACTICS for today’s FIRES. WATER ON THE FIRE is one of my biggest priorities as a Firefighter/Officer and it’s coordination with Ventilation is so CRITICAL for both the firefighter and any CIVILIANS that could be TRAPPED!!

It’s About Them!!

Letter of being selected below with details of the project. I take this selection serious and will give 100%. I will be looking to hear your voice as a CFT Follower and pass it on to those heading up this important research.

Congratulations!

You’ve been selected as a volunteer participant on the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institutes Advisory Panel for the project titled “Study of Coordinated Attack in Acquired Structures”. This 3-year project will incorporate experiments in acquired structures to evaluate the effectiveness of the strategic plan chosen during fire suppression operations with an emphasis on the coordination of ventilation and suppression. Experiments will focus on three occupancy types; single family residential homes, multi-family residential structures (apartments) and strip malls. Attach you will find the research proposal for the project.

You were one of 19 individuals selected from over 200 applicants based on geography, department type, department size, rank and years of experience with the goal of assembling a diverse group representative of the U.S. Fire Service. Your primary role is to assist FSRI in ensuring the research is directed to the target audience (the U.S. Fire Service) and that the end product of the research is able to be easily disseminated into practice.

What is expected of those selected? The project requires 3 trips for in person meetings; an Introductory Planning Meeting in Columbia, MD (most likely in fall 2017), Witnessing of Experiment(s) (TBD Based on structure availability) and a Summary Meeting in Columbia, MD (summer of 2019). UL FSRI will cover all travel expenses associated with these trips. We are not able to cover salary expenses for missed time as a result of attending the meetings. Permission to participate from your fire departments management is not required but we highly encourage it.

What we need right now? Please acknowledge receipt of this e-mail by replying to Robin.Zevotek@ul.com with your best contact information (e-mail and phone number).

We look forward to your participation in this study.

Sincerely,

Robin Zevotek, PE
Lead Engineer
